Remember that the o in Hom would be a much rounder sound, rhyming with "Rome" not with "mom" and that the H would sound raspy.

The speaker should do another take of the audio here. The "Q" is spoken more like a "q" or "H," the syllabalic emphasis in the beginning of the sentence is obscured too much for beginner comprehension, and the "'" aren't emphasized enough to be off-set from other negative sonic spaces.

I don't disagree with your points. We don't have many strings from this speaker, and I think she may be the only one recording whose native language is not English, so I'm reluctant to record over her work. I don't want your female model to be all Qov, all the time.
